Carol ★★★★

Richly thoughtful, caring film; the mannered, obsessive recreation of 50s film-styles (coughSirkcough) becomes a tool for examining the restrictions placed on discourse in the 50s and the ways the period shaped the subjectivity of the characters -- the things they can/can't say, the things they can/can't do...

Carol's not a good person. It's possible the culture that surrounded her didn't offer her any ways to be a better person.
